New Delhi: Ensuring the presence of proper health care and medical facilities in every district, Uttar Pradesh is close to achieving the vision of ‘One District One Medical College’ which remained a ‘distant dream’ for 70 years, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday.

While launching as many as 233 development projects worth Rs 477.46 crore in Deoria, Yogi Adityanath said, “The upcoming Maharshi Devraha Baba Medical College in Deoria, Medical College in Kushinagar, AIIMS in Gorakhpur and medical colleges in other districts will achieve the vision of ‘One District One Medical College’ which remained illusive for seven decades. Government is determined to provide medical colleges in every district in two-three years.”

Paying respects to Lt Ravindra Kishore Shahi on his death anniversary, the CM said, “Even when Shahi Ji is not present among us after 40 years, the BJP in the state and the centre is working on his values, ideals and for the benefit of villages, poor, farmers, youth and women, covering every section of the society without any kind of discrimination.”

On the occasion, the Chief Minister also distributed loan approval certificates/toolkits to farmers, provided certificates to beneficiaries of various other government schemes, and rewarded progressive farmers, Angwanwadi and sanitation workers for their extraordinary contribution. Moreover, the CM also inaugurated a three-day agricultural fair and distributed citations to national and state-level players and students.

The CM went on to say that the government is giving pace to development in every field and is also ensuring the protection of livelihood of those facing the wrath of natural calamities. “We are standing with every family and farmer who got affected by the untimely rains and floods in the state. Ration kits, and relief materials are being delivered to the doorstep of every needy and compensation on a priority basis will be provided to farmers who have faced crop loss by conducting surveys in a timely manner.”

The Chief Minister also urged the farmers to adopt natural farming methods and shift to cow-based farming to improve the quality of crops in a cost-effective and environmental-friendly manner. “Form FPOs, establish centres of excellence, adopt innovative means of farming, use advanced ways of farming to meet the futuristic needs and expand the scope of agriculture in Uttar Pradesh,” he said.

Recalling the contribution of unsung freedom fighters, Yogi said, “As India celebrates Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsava Year, freedom fighters like Ramchandra Vidyarthi, hailing from an economically poor background are being celebrated and remembered. Under PM Modi, India is celebrating its heritage and is also paying homage to every individual who contributed in any manner towards nation-building.”

Yogi also gave a strict warning to those trying to play with the lives of the common man, saying, “Government’s policy of zero-tolerance against crime and criminals is applicable to all. Anyone trying to cause harm or disrupt the safety and security in the state will be made to suffer severely.”

The Chief Minister said that every resolution made by great men is being fulfilled today. “Dr Shyama Prasad Mukerji’s dream was fulfilled by PM Modi by abolishing Article 370 from Kashmir forever, and strengthening the concept of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’.”
